About this guide

Packapalooza is an all-day block party and street festival capping off Wolfpack Welcome Week at the start of the academic year. We will have everything it takes to celebrate in NC State style, including great music, activities throughout the day, and fun entertainment for the whole family.

In 2016 we had over 75,000 attendees with over 320 vendor booths, and we expect to have even more this year. The daylong festival will feature a main stage performance area at the historic Belltower for national and regional musical groups and then a two other stages. One near DH Hill Library featuring talent from the local area, including some of our amazing students and organizations on campus. Our third location will be a stage across from Chamberlain Street. Hillsborough Street from the Roundabout to Brooks Street will be closed for the event, allowing campus entities, businesses, organizations (for profit and non-profit) to set up vendor spaces to interact with the attendees. Businesses and restaurants on Hillsborough Street will be participating as well in support of their partnership with NC State University.

Packapalooza has provided an exciting and memorable way to celebrate the start of a new academic year with inception during our 125th anniversary. Continuing this tradition provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the arrival of new students, to welcome returning students, staff and faculty, alumni, and our local community including the Hillsborough Street merchants.

Together we all make NC State a great place to be. Join us for a PACKtacular day on Saturday August 19th!
